A fantastic finish

04.09.2007 | Tennis


Roger overcame a spirited opponent in Feliciano Lopez to advance to the quarter-finals of the US Open in last evening’s night-session. He lost the first set, barely won the second, and trailed love-40 to start the third. But then Roger did the sort of remarkable thing that only our hero does: He won the next 35 points he served.


Answering every question Lopez posed with an exclamation point, Roger took control of the third set and the match, coming back to win 3-6, 6-4, 6-1, 6-4 in the fourth round at Flushing Meadows.



"He is a fantastic player I just hung in there and hoped he didn't keep playing so well," said Roger of Lopez after the match. With this victory, he has set up a tantalising quarter-final clash with former champ Andy Roddick. He is 13-1 against Roddick, but Roger’s comment was: "it's a great record, but it doesn't help me. We’ll see how it goes. Andy's always tough at the U.S. Open."

Dear Roger,

Congratulations on the win!

Who can forget the match in which you played A-Rod in this year's Oz open! I just hope that amazingly sucessful occation wouldn't affect your preparation mentally for tonight's game.

Best wishes for you

Hey Roger, You've taken over the number 1 pos. from Nadal in race, congrats!!! Very nice because this tournament can increase your advantage.

Be alert in the next round. I believe Roddick is the best competitor left in the tournament so be careful. He

Nadal OUT!!! Could not even reach QF. Must be his knees!!! Now Novak looks like a finals contender. PUT him in his place if he reaches the finals!
